Newbie - GTV 3.0 V6 Lusso '98

Hello everyone!

I've been in possession of a beautiful GTV V6 Lusso (red with tan leather) since just before Christmas, which I was borrowing from my Dad as a get by.

Unfortunately I've fallen head over heels for it. Lucky for me my Dad has just bought another GTV (V6 Cup - No.37) to replace it so things are looking good for a long term loan

It's just passed it's MOT this morning, and I'm just waiting for the bump stops to be replaced this afternoon, then i'll be sorted. Also lining up to drop it in to Alfa Workshop in the next couple fo weeks to get a new clutch, flywheel (solid) and diff (Quaife) fitted. Till then taking it easy as I've heard the diffs have a habit of exploding and taking out the gearbox!?

Looking to replace a few cosmetic bits (trim and badges etc). Might get the alloys refurbished, and probs get it tracked (four wheel) too, as I'm getting a slight vibration at 'motorway' speeds

Will no doubt need some help/pointers on a few bits in the near future, so watch this space!
